Two Cats Comic Shop, 320 Portal Avenue in San Francisco, will be hosting a signing by Darick Robertson on April 13 at 3 p.m. The Two Cats appearance is one of two in-person opportunities to catch the illustrator behind The Boys and Transmetropolitan in the Bay Area. Robertson will also be in San Jose at Big Wow! ComicFest May 17 and 18.
Robertson has most recently been involved with Adam Egypt Mortimer on Ballistic. The title, published by Black Mask Studios, was named Bloody Disgusting‘s best debut comic of the year for 2013. According to the BMS website Ballistic is a “madcap, psychedelic, transreal, utterly-wacko buddy adventure about Butch and his best friend Gun, a drug-addicted, genetically-modified, foul-mouthed firearm, as they attempt to elevate Butch from air conditioner repairman to master criminal in the twisted, post-eco-apocalyptic Repo City State, a reclaimed trash island built entirely from DNA-based, living technology with bad attitudes.”
Below is a photo of an illustration Robertson drew for my wife of Grant Morrison at MorrisonCon.
